Cariboo Archers dominate at annual 3D fun shoot in Williams Lake

Archers from all over were describing the Cariboo Archers Annual 3D Fun Shoot as a great success, according to Al Campsall with Cariboo Archers.

“To put the icing on the cake, a number of Cariboo Archers finished on the podium,” reported Campsall, who himself beat all other male archers not using rangefinders by 19 points..

Just under 80 archers attended from all over the province to attend the event, which the local archers had spent weeks preparing for.

Lee Jackman won the most contested category by a wide margin of 65 points and Melanie McComber outscored a Canadian champion in her category by 28 points, noted Campsall. The Cariboo Archers do boast a stacked team, as Campsall points out, with no other archery club in Canada having ever boasted four Team Canada members competing at World Championships in one year. Cariboo Archers Dan Mobbs, Fred Streleoff, Jessie Mobbs and Al Campsall are all past Team Canada members who made the podium on the weekend.
